Eugene Symphony on the Air: Episode 1

Daniel Cho, Host and Assistant Conductor
Gabriella Smith, Composer
Joseph Young, Conductor
Daniel Hsu, Piano

Gabriella Smith | ONE for Orchestra

Rachmaninov | Third Piano Concerto

Prokofiev | Romeo & Juliet

In Episode 1 on September 17, we’ll hear a movement from Seattle-based First Symphony Project composer Gabriella Smith's ONE for Orchestra, learn about Rachmaninov's fiendishly difficult Third Concerto from piano soloist Daniel Hsu, and talk to guest conductor Joseph Young about Prokofiev's Suite from Romeo & Juliet. We'll hear sections of each of these wonderful works as well.


Join us for these three broadcasts, which you can tune in to live on each Sunday night, or listen to through the KLCC website following each show.

Next up:

  • Sunday, September 24: In Episode 2, we'll hear from First Symphony Project composer Angélica Negrón about the world premiere of Sinfonía Isleña, talk with soloist Pallavi Mahidhara about Saint-Saëns' Piano Concerto No. 2, and learn about Ravel's colorful ballet Daphnis et Chloé from Music Director & Conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong, alongside performance excerpts from each of these pieces.
  • Sunday, October 1: In Episode 3, we'll focus on two classics and a modern miracle. We'll hear all about The Fretless Clarinet, a klezmer-inspired work for clarinet and orchestra by David Krakauer and Kathleen Tagg, then delve into Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 with soloist Julian Rhee, and finally discuss Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, his Ode to Joy, with Music Director Francesco Lecce-Chong. We'll also hear sections from each of the works mixed in with the conversations.
